how many miles on a car is too many

Are you thinking about selling your used card, truck or RV but aren’t sure if you sell it or hang onto it for a few more years?

Although you may still love your vehicle, the reality is that as a vehicle gets more miles on it, that car, truck or van will begin to breakdown more often and you may find yourself spending more money to keep that vehicle on the road compared to what you could be spending for a newer vehicle.

How to Know When It’s Time to Get Rid of It

When most vehicles have 60,000+ miles on them they can generally be considered to be drivable for a few more years but when a vehicle has over 100,000 miles on it, this generally is the point in a car, truck or vans life when it should be sold or recycled.

Why?

Besides not running in optimal condition like it did when it was newer, that vehicle will have parts that are going to need replacing as they begin to wear with age.

Some of the parts you can expect to replace on an older vehicle include your sensors, air conditioner motor, alternator, clutch, brake drums and more.

Vehicles Are Not Made to Last Forever

In today’s world a vehicle isn’t made to last forever especially if it’s been known or loved over the years and with technology improving by the year it makes sense to purchase a newer vehicle because this will also ensure that you are able to enjoy a safer, higher quality drive each time you get behind the wheel.

Once you’re ready to make the decision to get a newer vehicle the big question is what should you do with your old vehicle?

Should you try selling it on Facebook, Craigslist or recycle it?

The answer to this question is you should recycle your vehicle with Fred’s Auto Removal since we will pay you what your vehicle is really worth.

PORTLAND, Ore. – One of the top questions that every driver will have at some point is if they should trade in their car or recycle it.

This is an excellent question to ask because trading in a vehicle is very simple to do because it’s easy to think that the dealer will compensate you for the fair market value of your vehicle, right?

Sadly, most car dealers will pay you far less than what your vehicle is really worth and it’s possible that the trade in value that they quoted you over the phone will not be the same quote that you receive when you visit the dealer in person.

Know What Your Vehicle Is Really Worth

Before choosing to trade in or recycle your vehicle it’s important for you to know what it’s really worth because you may have new parts, tires, or accessories on your car that make it worth more than other comparable vehicles on the road today.

To find out what your car is really worth you should research it online via the Kelly Blue Book or autotrader.com just so you can get an idea of what other owners in the area are selling their cars for.
